Well, the little Groundhog in Pennsylvania saw his shadow this last Friday. That means hope is in store for a quicker end to winter, hooray! Soon the sun will start shining, the thermometer will be on the rise, trees will bloom and it will be great to be in Chicago again.

WHOS in the RECORDING STUDIO
Park of Chicago came in to record a song (for his
wife's birthday, how sweet!) Joon has been playing guitar and singing
since childhood and in the last few years started to write songs
as well. This is his first foray into recording and with the help
of the production staff here at The Cow, we turned his acoustic
guitar demo into a full on radio ready release. Joon played both
acoustic guitar and electric guitar on the song and of course sang
from his heart. Joon is expecting this to be the first
recording in a long line of songs he's written. By the way, his
wife loved the song!
Gary Landess is perfecting the mixes on some of his songs he's recorded recently as well as gearing up to write some new songs with some new grooves. Gary has also been kind enough to loan us some of his artwork that you can now see hanging on the live room walls. Gary's visual art is influenced by Rothko and Gerhard Richter and uses the mix of oil paint colors and textures on canvas to create different moods. The artwork is great and very inspiring for when you're rocking out. Be sure to check it out when you're here then tell Gary how much you like it at www.garylandess.com.

WHAT'S IN THE COW CD PLAYER
so much great music out these days we love to listen to it all (and
we suggest you do the same)! Here's a few ideas to get you started.
JOKE OF THE MONTH
There was this city guy driving in the country, and came across a sign nailed to a fence post saying "Boat for sale"...
Thinking he could use a boat to go fishing with his kids, he drove into the farmers yard and looked around for the boat.
Having only seen a couple of cows, some chickens and a pig, he went up to the farmers house and asked about the sign.
The farmer came out and with his hands holding his suspenders, he said..."yep, dem der two cows of mine, 'Bessie and Eunice', dey are boat for sale eh"...
